World Famous Noma Restaurant Coming To Claridge’s (for 10 days)

While London has an abundance of Michelin starred and fine dining restaurants, it doesn’t have Noma, a Copenhagen restaurant that is almost universally regarded as the world’s best, especially since El Bulli in Spain has now shut down. So it is with great excitement that René Redzepi, head chef of Noma, has unveiled “A Taste of Noma at Claridge’s”.

Joining forces with this landmark hotel in Mayfair, Redzepi is bringing his eclectic reinterpretation of Nordic cuisine, and his revolutionary foraging & local approach to ingredients. While diners at his Noma restaurant are treated to Scandinavian ingredients, René Redzepi will be using local, seasonal British ingredients for his A Taste Of Noma, creating new dishes that even seasoned fans of his will be excited about.

Redzepi comments: “We are excited about the opportunity to be part of the celebration of the Olympic Games in London and to work closely with the team at Claridge’s. It is a different set-up from our home field, but we look forward to exploring the bounty of a different part of the world.”

To book or make a reservation for a table, you have to register your interest on this Claridge’s webpage, in order to be informed and get the booking link once booking opens. The special tasting five course menu is priced at £195 per person. Bookings will be taken for both lunch and dinner between the 28th July and the 6th August, right in the middle of the London Olympics 2012 games.

So you can bet that those tables over those 10 days will be snapped up quickly – especially the Friday and Saturday evening seatings. The menu hasn’t been released yet, but the anticipation and wait adds to the suspense and excitement!
